Important time to be shopping local

Recent years have been difficult for business owners in Sicamous and we all hoped that this year would be the first of many better years.

Recent years have been difficult for business owners in Sicamous and we all hoped that this year would be the first of many better years.  Unfortunately, mother nature had different ideas.

I have always been a strong proponent of shopping local.  When I am too old and gibbled to drive, I want there to be all the local business’ here that I need so that I don’t have to depend on others any more than absolutely necessary.

In light of the recent floods, local businesses are facing a very difficult year during the very time they should be making the most.

I challenge locals and visitors alike stop and think before you give away your trade to other towns and cities.

Consider supporting your friends and neighbours right here in Sicamous. Without our support, many may not survive.

Come on Sicamous, let’s show local business what we are made of.

Shop Sicamous.
